Description: The LEVAN is a ROImanager like plugin which enables the first imput for karyotype description and idiogram elaboration using relative lenght data. The plugin classifies the chromosomal morphology of meiotic (bivalents and univalents) or mitotic metaphase chromosomes in digital images. The morphological criterion of the plugin is a modification of the criteria described by Levan et al (1964) and Green & Sessions (1991). A comparative table showing equivalence of the considered criteria for morphological nomenclature of chromosomes, step by step instructions for LEVAN installation and examples can be found in the pdf file here (LEVANTutorial.pdf).
